The famous Christmas carol Good King Wenceslas serves as the basis for this lively farce

The Good King sets out to give his gift to a peasant he has seen, but encounters unanticipated difficulties from some of his subjects who question the "political correctness" of his gift

The play also has terrific fun with the "thither and yon" of Olde English dialogue

This clever one-act play has been produced successfully by many age groups including a junior high school drama club and a drama group at a retirement community

It's also suitable for both Christian and secular groups

5m, 4w. Singers. Cast is flexible/expandable
